Chance the Rapper Has Fans Choose His "Saturday Night Live" Setlist
(AllHipHop News) Chance the Rapper asked his fans to choose his setlist for his upcoming performance on “Saturday Night Live.”
The Chicago hip hop star is returning to the show almost a year to the day since his last appearance, and has reached out to his fans and followers on Twitter for help picking two songs from his latest album, Coloring Book.
"I've been trying to perform EVERY song from Coloring Book on television once," Chance wrote on the social media site. "I've done 5 so far. What do you want to see me do on #SNL?"
The rapper has so far performed “Angels” on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” “Blessings” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Summer Friends” on “Good Morning America.”
It was recently announced he would be the musical guest, alongside host Casey Affleck, on the final “Saturday Night Live” on December 17.
Chance last performed on the show almost exactly a year ago on December 12, 2015. It's been a busy week for the rapper, as he performed at the White House on Thursday (December 1) at President Barack Obama's final National Christmas Tree Lighting.
Chance gave a rousing rendition of his track “Sunday Candy” as he helped celebrate the annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree with the president, a fellow Chicago native, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha.
Sasha was even spotted singing along to Chance's track at the festivities.
Chance has known the outgoing president since his father was a state director for Obama when he was a senator in Illinois.
"I first met Chance when he was 8 years old, and so we’ve been family for a while," the president recently revealed. Other performers at the National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington D.C., which was hosted by Eva Longoria, included Kelly Clarkson, folk band The Lumineers, and country star Garth Brooks.
